CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LinkTek Corporation announces the latest release of their LinkFixer Advanced software. Version 3.0 has tested at up to 2.6 times faster at automatically fixing broken file links than the previous version and sports other improvements resulting in what LinkTek COO Ed Clark says is a "major time-saver and data-loss prevention tool for IT staff".
The new version has the ability to process multiple files at the same time, through the use of multiple threads in the Windows operating system, which allows the user to complete projects faster, while using fewer instances of LinkFixer Advanced.
Long espousing that data migrations and folder restructurings are complicated enough, LinkTek is working to eliminate a chunk of the work — something that LinkTek customers say saves them loads of time, reduces worry about lost data and saves their organizations lots of money. This is especially true for those conducting projects like migrating data into a content management system (CMS) or an enterprise content management (ECM) such as SharePoint or OpenText; migrating to "the cloud"; migrating data as part of a hardware upgrade or server consolidation; upgrading from Novell to Windows; moving to distributed file system (DFS); upgrading from an older version of Microsoft Office to 2013; or even just restructuring their folder system.
According to Clark, "Data migrations require foresight, planning and effective implementation to avoid serious problems. One often unforeseen problem that has to be addressed is the handling of broken file links caused by moving or renaming files and folders." Mr. Clark continues, "Without an efficient method of handling file links, the result can be lost data, diminished productivity, unanticipated extended downtime, complaining end-users and thousands of man-hours of post-migration work for an already-overtaxed IT staff. It has long been LinkTek's goal to rescue IT and records management professionals from this situation. We can do this significantly faster than ever before. I encourage our current LinkFixer Advanced maintenance-holders to download their free upgrade."
LinkFixer Advanced supports Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access, Visio, ASP, ASPX, CSS, JS, Adobe Acrobat PDF, AutoCAD, MicroStation, InDesign, PageMaker, HTML and other file types.
